I interviewed Chris Brogan, the Keynote Speaker at Blogworld NY at about 10:15 AM last Thursday, June 7th. Chris Brogan is a professional speaker and the President of Human Business Works. He has an amazing free newsletter you can sign up for at http://www.Chrisbrogan.com. His blog is ranked number three by Advertising Age Power 150 in Marketing Blogs. He is also an excellent teacher and you can learn about Chris Brogan's Social Media Marketing courses.
Chris Brogan's latest book isThe Impact Equation. He also wrote the NY Times Best Seller, Google+ For Business – How Google’s Social Network Changes Everything. He co-wrote another book, Trust Agents – Using the Web to Build Influence, Improve Reputation and Earn Trust. Chris is in almost a million Google+ users circles. He posted this video interview today on Google+ to his followers and others in his circle.
I knew Chris was a smart, social media guru and an amazing writer and video blogger. However, meeting him in person was a completely different experience. Chris is warm, friendly, funny and charismatic. Chris said our interview was a lot of fun for him, as it was for me. I never met Chris before the conference, but I felt a connection like we had been long time friends.
This video is a unique conversation with Chris talking not only about the business of social media, but from his heart. It is very conversational and funny. Not his typical interview about marketing social media and his expertise.
Chris told me, “My favorite thing to do is to empower other people to believe more in themselves after this whole world has ground them down to thinking they have to conform to be something else.”
We discussed his keynote speech where he said people don’t pay attention to the compliments they get on their work or their blogs. Instead they focus on the one bad comment. I said I do that. Chris responded that we all do even the biggest self help people in the world. They just have learned how to work it out.
I recommend taking classes with Chris Brogan to expand your website, blogging, social media marketing and business expertise.
